The one in Kanab, UT is still available. Even at the price they're asking, still a deal over say... a Snot Trac! If I had a place to store it, I'd probably just buy it. But I do that too much. The owner of my rented storage sheds has made enough money off me to run for and win a place in the state legislature.

Spied this in an equipment yard near Area 51 in NV. Not sure what they could possibly be using it for, not much but desert out there. Maybe they haul UFO nuts to the top of Tikaboo Peak in the winter?! It appeared to be undergoing PMRs.

I see mtmogs looking, sure to get the straight scoop shortly...
Nice find! It's U900/406, same chassis as mine. It is the shorter wheelbase variant of the 416 (2380mm v. 2900).

Bob,

I only need a Kristi to get out of buying the beer. I have too many other toys to get another. I'm also not in the right climate to justify a seasonal machine. I've seen a couple (although I don't recall what they're called) that are all-season which is something I may be able to consider. It looked kind of the shape of a VW bug with only a ROPS on the top. The pics I saw were setup for logging.

Even if a Snot Trac wasn't a one-season machine, I still wouldn't recommend it.

Spotted these two while land-hunting in NH two weeks ago. Owned by the snowmobile club in Jefferson. One of the memebers was there and told me that these two were recent upgrades from two of the same makes. So, there may be an old Tucker sitting in a yard up there somewhere. He said there is another club in nearby Lancaster with a machine or two as well.

Note the registration sticker on the window. Anyone know the NH snow cat laws? I should find out since I hope to move there with my Kristi before the years out.

Bob like you said you will be bringing a Kristi. Everyone knows a Kristi isnt a "REAL" Snowcat.

That's OK. Kristis make their own trails.

And while LameTracs and Snot Tracs have some pictures of them operating on roads (like your picture above) and in fields, the powder is just too deep to step off and get a picture from a Kristi!

Those J5s are work horses! Usually they are kept working year round hauling tress and such. They arent a true snowcat since they are heavy but man they sure can take some abuse!
